This year’s annual Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Symposium and Awards event was broken into a series of two virtual events presented one week apart.

The panels featured in-depth and spirited discussions about the roles businesses, leadership and mentorship can play to accelerate diversity, inclusion and equity in the workplaces here in Los Angeles and beyond.
